Thompson Gray, a Huntsville-based defense contractor, recently donated $25,000 to Village of Promise, a non-profit organization founded to address the needs of children and families in distressed, high-poverty neighborhoods. This donation will support the organization’s ‘Adopt-A-Classroom’ program from August 2021 through July 2022.
“Our Precious Promises Early Childhood Program is vital to our families who desire to return to the workforce but lack access to affordable childcare,” says Village of Promise Executive Director Libby Parker. “We are continuously looking for ways to fund it, and Thompson Gray stepped up to be our first ‘Adopt a Classroom’ donor. Their sponsorship enables us to continue to support families on their journeys out of poverty. We are so grateful for their commitment and generosity.”
The ‘Adopt-A-Classroom’ program provides financial support and educational materials to infant, toddler and Pre-K classrooms at the Village of Promise facility. The organization provides programs and a support system to empower families to reach their goals, advance out of poverty and give back to the Huntsville community. Families can register their children in these programs and classrooms free of charge.
“We’re passionate about supporting our local non-profits whenever we can,” says Thompson Gray CEO Ron Gray. “When we heard about their ‘Adopt-a-Classroom’ program, we jumped at the chance to support this initiative. This organization does exceptional work for the community and is a valuable resource for the families of Huntsville.”
This donation is part of Thompson Gray’s community giving initiative, TG Together, which supports organizations and charities their employees are passionate about through financial donations and service. Since starting its charitable donations in 2015, the company has donated more than $560,000 to various organizations.
